    AFAIK no one has gotten any warnings this round either.
    many of those who posted on reddit's Verizon forum claimed to have
    received disconnect for usage between 20GB and 30GB... I can't think
    of any reason why they would make up stories like that, but then again,
    I have to wait until someone posts actual scanned pictures of the VZW
    letters.

    It's not that we think they made up stories. It's that nobody on HoFo - the other large community of UDPers, can reproduce it.

    I suspect many of those "20GB and 30GB" people, wound up using 200GB or more many bill cycles ago, and simply weren't aware or don't remember.

    yeah, I think you're right. There's this one guy who said
    he used "about 300gb" back in 2007. guess Verizon is
    like an elephant that never forgets.

    so if I have the largest data cap plan of Verizon of 100gb and I routinely go over it by 100gbs will Verizon terminate my service? Lol no because I'm making them a lot of money. And not about me causing issues with their network. It's more about money than anything else. Udp users are so small in amount but we aren't making them any money by paying them $450/mon for 100gb plus possible overage 🏻🏻🏻

    Just think of all the money they would make if everybody was on a tiered plan? customers who are unlimited data plan pay a monthly rate of whatever and go and use as much as they want however in verizons eyes you are a waste of their data as they are not making any money off of you. Frankly I wrote about this over a year ago and nobody must have bothered to notice. The days of unlimited data are fast closing and you might as well get used to it. SMH.

    wireless carriers are just milking it as much as possible.. as recently as 2000, I was still paying almost $100 for long distance phone calls! (domestic and int'l) these days, I haven't paid a cent in long distance.

    Yep, people like you have been predicting this for the past five years on HoFo and I've been enjoying my unlimited the whole time. Someday, you may be right. Then, we can all say you are a genius. In the meantime, well, you know.

    Also ATT charges us $10/mo additional for unlimited long distance on a copper POTS line at work. The taxes and fees are the real killer the rate is $25/mo for phone $10/mo for LD. The bill is $55.50/mo it's $20.50/mo in taxes and fees alone.

    As long as there are other carriers offering UDP then UDP will still be around.

    But nothing like the all you can eat at the same or faster speed of Verizon's udp IMO

    No, I'm talking about the people who posted that they received
    disconnect letters, even when their monthly was less than 20gb.

    I disagree. Have you seen Viaero and United Wireless? They are 'scrappy' LTE carriers with very limited resources offering data plans FAR in excess of what the Big 4 provide. Go quote for corporate or personal tiers and compare to the Big 4. These two operators are 1/10th the cost per gig of the Big 4. Even on the metered plans, there are unlimited data at night plans. A reasonable network management strategy.

    We are using the regional carriers anywhere they touch. They have stellar rates and comparable cellular data networks these days.

    ...also T-mobile's new IoT tier at $25/year for unlimited access at 64kbps is a game changer. It's a precursor of things to come. Capacity will continue to expand and the cost per bit will continue to decline. Whether or not consumer grade tiers follow remains to be seen. I guess consumers will be comfortable spending ~$800/month for 100GB of cellular data by that time.
